Rider Updates

Today was the first race of the season. The Dream Riders track is always super gnarly, and it was no different today. I pulled a pretty nice holeshot (2 for 2 this season), and began pulling away. However, down in the creek section, it got pretty slippery, and while searching for a new line, my front end washed out, and I dropped to fourth before I could get going again. After that, I starting riding pretty tight, but I wasn't too worried because I could see the three right ahead of me. I worked my way by, and led the first couple laps of the race. On lap 3, one of those pesky trees jumped out infront of me, as a result of the crash, I was left without a front brake, and had dropped back again, this time to 3rd. I had my work cut out considering this is one of the fastest tracks in the series. I put my head down and make quite the charge, catching on the final lap, within the final 2 miles. It was going to be a fun finish, and we both knew it. We slammed off eachother a few times before I could make the pass, but I couldn't hold it. A mere half mile from the finish, I couldn't get the bike slowed in time at the bottom of a hill, and he snuck back by me. I lost the race by one second.On the good side, I'm happy with the way I rode down the stretch, especially without a front brake. Also, the only lap faster then my last was my first, and my last lap was the 4th fastest overall...I'll take that with a broken bike.
